    Hey all, New guy here. I'm picking up a 1976 XS650 next week. I want to replace the rear drum brake with a disc set up. I'm sure it must have been done before. Anyone care to enlighten me as to what all I'll need?

    Thanks, Steve in SF

    Thanks Skull,

    That's exactly what I was looking for. Looks like the frame in post #25 is where I'll be heading.

    I have a Radian or TX750 swingarm in mind.

    Now to source the spoke rear hub and all of the necessary brake components.
